TODAY’S VERSE
I will be strong and courageous! I won’t be afraid of full of terror. I won’t panic because You Lord my God will personally go ahead of me! You will not fail! You will never abandon me!
Deuteronomy 31:6 (PBP)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I decided to use of one of the verses from my Personalized Bible Paraphrase. I put scripture in the first person so we can really own what it is saying. I did it because I was deeply moved this morning on the way to the church. I was thinking about many things. What am I going to do about the future? What about my boys and their family? Thinking about my wife’s health. And then I turned a corner. On my right was a high school athletic field. Above the bleachers was the announcers stand. On the top of the structure was a sign. It said, “Expect A Victory!” It took me a few seconds but then I got it. What have I been expecting? Suddenly I felt a switch turn on. I straightened my back and raised my head and started to thank God. I praised Him and let Him know that I expected victory. I expected His favor and love. I expected that I will accomplish all that He wants me to do. I expect victory. So today I choose to be strong and courageous. I won’t be afraid of full of terror. I won’t panic. Why? Because the Lord my God will personally go ahead of me! He will not fail! He will never abandon me! Today, I invite you to expect victory too.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, today I expect victory because You are with me, You love never fails, You go ahead of me and will never abandon me.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
I know the greatness of the Lord.
Psalms 135:5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Have you ever tried to describe the Grand Canyon to someone who hasn’t been there? Pictures help. Your descriptions can get them excite. However, nothing can beat being there. Until they stand on one of the rims and look across the grand expanse for themselves, they will not know its majesty. It is the same way with today’s passage. David writes, “I know the greatness of the Lord.” This was a first hand, observational knowledge. He knew the greatest of the Lord because He had seen the Lord in action. This was experiential knowledge. He knew the greatness of the Lord because he spent quiet time with Him. This was relational knowledge. David knew the greatness of the Lord! Because of this, he stepped out in faith trusting God for all his needs. Today, don’t just settle for head knowledge about God. Stop and know the greatness of the Lord!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me to know You. Help me know Your greatness. Might Your Holy Spirit lead me into a deeper knowledge of You.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
I have stilled and quieted myself, just as a small child is quiet with its mother. Yes, like a small child is my soul within me.
Psalms 131:2 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Have you ever seen the behavior of a mother and infant? They go through a rhythm of joy and quiet. The mother is happy to be with the baby and the baby is joyful in return. Laughter and a lot of love is exchanged. Next the baby will quiet itself and just want to rest. This is especially true after nursing. The joy bond between the mother and child is followed by quiet. A deep, serene trust is built. This is the way God prepares us for life. He knows that, in this world, we need joy and quiet. David knew this too. David purposely stilled himself to a place of quietness where he could enjoy and be nourished by the fellowship of God. He knew that peace, hope, courage and strength all came from the love bond He had with His Heavenly Father. This love bond was the result of times of joy and quiet He spent with God. We need to do the same. God offers us peace that passes all understanding. He gives rest to those that He loves. He asks us to be still so we can know that He is God. Today put aside some time and quiet yourself before God. Be at peace, resting in His love for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I come to You today and desire a sacred time of quietness before You. I need Your peace. I need to be assured of Your love. I desire to experience Your quiet presence. As I come before You, like a child resting in their mother’s love, I ask You to please quiet my heart and fill me with your joy, love and peace. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, ‘I will confess my rebellion to the LORD.’ And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.
Psalms 32:5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What hope is found when we decide to stop doing something that is wrong. What peace is ours when we set out to make right those wrongs that we have committed. What joy we experience when we unburden our self of things that have held us prisoner in the dungeon of guilt. David paints the picture of inner turmoil and anguish we bring upon ourselves when we store the toxic emotions of a guilty conscience. He writes, “When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long.” But later David writes, “Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight! Yes, what joy for those whose record the LORD has cleared of guilt, whose lives are lived in complete honesty!” Where there was pain, there can be joy. Where there was guilt, there can be forgiveness. Today, come to God with anything that is bothering your conscience. Don’t go another day without experiencing the joy from a heart forgiven.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for the substitute death of Christ for my sins. I know I can bring any of my wrongdoings to You for Your complete forgiveness. Lord, hear my prayers of repentance and restore joy deep into my soul.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
II Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We all live with stress. There is pressure from all sides. Relationships, finances, health, how do we get any relief? Where can we go to get help? Paul knew. He wrote, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles.” Paul knew about God’s compassion. He also knew God’s comfort. Often it is hard to find comfort in difficult situations. Will God answer our prayer? Will we find the answer we seek? Will He act supernaturally on our behalf? We don’t know all the variables, we have a limited grasp of the situation and we can’t always explain the way things turn out, but we can count on one thing. God will comfort us! He will, in His great compassion, visit us and bring a comfort to our heart that is supernatural. More than that, God will orchestrate many of His followers to comfort us as well. That is His plan. When we are comforted by His grace and mercy, God wants us to go and comfort others that He brings our way. We are to comfort others in the same way we were helped. I fear sometimes that we have forgotten this. Somehow the church has traded our role as a hospital, shelter and place of sanctuary for a country club. We have all sorts of programs for ourselves, but we fail to bring comfort to the world. What a lost the witness of God’s comfort. God has commanded us to take His love to the streets. That is what Jesus did. Today, bring your own burdens to the Lord. Let Him comfort you. And when He does, go with the same compassion He had and comfort someone else.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I pray that You, in all Your compassion, would comfort me in my struggles. And as You do, I ask that You would bring people into my life that I could comfort in return. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
II Corinthians 13:13 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What a wonderful God we have. He could have set creation in motion and ignored the human species. He could have given up on mankind with all the rebellion and rejection we have given Him. Instead, God has made us the object of His affection, the crown jewels of His creation. And as a Triune God He has purposely given us everything we need to have a relationship with Him. As God the Son, He has given us grace through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As God the Father, He is love, so He shares His own nature with us. As God the Spirit, He fellowships with us in a way that is compatible to the way we think and feel. Grace, love and fellowship. Today, spend time with God and get to know Him and what He has for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, I thank You that You have manifested Yourself in ways that I can understand. Thank You for Your love, grace and fellowship through Father, Son and Spirit.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.
Colossians 3:10 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Paul starts this passage by writing, “But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds.” What a list. And how many times have we tried to do this? The only way we can successfully get rid of these negative characteristics is by getting rid of our old sinful nature. However, the best way to “put off” our old nature is to focus on “putting on” the new! But how? By getting to know our creator God and become more like Him. God has put in us the capacity to know Him. His Holy Spirit inside us guides us and as we attune ourself with Him, the renewing of our mind takes place. Today, spend time with God. Get to know Him, experience His presence and His immense love for you. Let Him speak to your heart. As you do, you will experience yourself becoming renewed.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I want to know You more. I want to experience Your presence more. I want to be renewed more and more so I can be like You.
AMEN
